I guess it depends on the requirements.

After making the mistake of "Upgrading" to IOS6, I went ballistic when I saw that they'd separated podcasts into their own app.

For one, it took away the ability to create a playlist of podcasts - which I was in the habit of doing before taking a 2-3 hour trip.

The whole thing smacked to me of a new direction at Apple: doing things for marketing reasons without insisting on a corresonding improvement in the user experience.

FWIW, I recently discovered that once one deletes the "PodCast" app the "Music" app resumes it's role in managing/presenting podcasts.
